Don't know if you have had any luck but here are three graves with two headstones from the Bridges Cemetery, Carroll Co., TN. I am posting the FIND-A-GRAVE web address where you can view the headstones.

They are J Taylor Bridges, Martha S Bridges & S H Bridges. No other headstones or cemetery markers are there to the best of my knowledge. The cemetery is quite small with a barbed wire fence around it. It is on the right side of Bridges Cemetery Road, almost to the very end of the road, on top of a hill on the right. It is a pretty rough dirt road with many ruts, take it easy, best to use a truck or SUV. There are many concrete foundation blocks, half buried, standing on end on what would appear to be grave plots. Whether there is anyone below these blocks in not known.

Clary / Clara BRIDGES Sugg was my GGG-grandmother. I know the Sugg family married into the Taylor, Bridges, Laycook families that migrated from NC to Carroll Co., around 1825. Most of the male Sugg families moved on to Yell, Sebastian and Logan counties in Arkansas.

The Sugg (s) from Dyer and Obion counties are related but from the clan that while moving from the same area of NC came by way of Henderson, KY. Some of them moved south into Shelby county and on down into Mississippi. You will often see the name as Suggs but it IS SUGG.

I have a wide-shot of the cemetery that I will post as soon as I find it.

Jim
